History of Gum Products.

 


Gum Products : Evolution.

The ancient Greeks were known to be fond of a gummy substance named
mastiche, derived from the resin of the mastic tree.

The Mayans developed the custom of chewing gum. Its use continued among
the descendants of the Mayans.

Meanwhile, the American Indians of New England were also chewing gum -
but made from the resin of spruce trees.The first gum products were
lumps of spruce gum which were sold commercially.

Spruce gum products were replaced by paraffin wax gum. Refined paraffin
waxes are also used as ingredients of chewing gum bases.

Modern day gum products actually appeared in 1869.
